Funny Xmas Poem...Anyone Know How it Goes?

Nurses Humor


Many years ago, I came across a poem in a Christmas card that made me fall down laughing. Unfortunately, I've lost the card.

It goes something like this:

I'm sending this letter to tell you,

The government's taken away,

the things I always have needed,

My packsack, my reindeer, my sleigh

So, I'm making my rounds on my donkey,

He's ancient, arthritic and slow

So, If you don't see me at Christmas,

I'm out on my *** in the snow!

Anyone know the correct version?

The version I heard went like this:

Dear Friends,

I'm writing this letter to tell you

That taxes have taken away

Just what I needed mostly

My workshop, my reindeer, my sleigh.

All I have left is a donkey

Who is old and tired and slow,

So if I don't see you Christmas

I'll be out on my a ss in the snow.
